"Stormy Weather" is a SpongeBob SquarePants episode from season twelve. In this episode, SpongeBob befriends a small storm cloud, but has to protect it from a crazed weather man.



The episode starts with a young storm cloud getting separated from his parents while SpongeBob is watching Gale Doppler announce the weather. SpongeBob sees that it's raining outside and asks himself why it's raining if Gale Doppler said it would be sunny skies. The rain turns out to be from the baby storm cloud, so SpongeBob decides to take him under his wing. He names the cloud Drizzle and the two start doing many activities together.

One day, SpongeBob ties Drizzle onto a fence and tells him he can't go inside the house until he's housebroken, due to Gary not being fond of him. While SpongeBob brings Drizzle his food, the cloud escapes and starts causing havoc on Bikini Bottom. Gale Doppler notices this and decides that he needs to suck up Drizzle so his prediction about the weather can stay true.

SpongeBob goes looking for Drizzle and eventually finds him. He thanks Gale Doppler for finding him but he says he needs to suck up the cloud as it is a danger to the public. SpongeBob and Gale both try to use leaf blowers to get Drizzle, with SpongeBob obtaining Drizzle by letting a kid take his leaf blower, allowing him to grab the cloud. While SpongeBob is escaping, Drizzle gets pulled in by Gale Doppler a large leaf blower attached to a construction machine.

SpongeBob begs Gale to let go of Drizzle, while crying out tears that make Drizzle bigger. The skies turn grey and Drizzle goes inside Gale Doppler's body, turning him into a storm cloud. He likes this as first, but realizes the damages caused to him due to becoming a storm cloud and wants to go back to normal. Gale eventually hits the parent clouds of Drizzle, which makes him come out of Gale and go to his parents. The weatherman asks about the clouds, but they blow him into the dehumidifier he was going to use on Drizzle and explodes. The episode ends with the cloud family leaving, but they give off a smaller cloud for SpongeBob to keep.


The episode was confirmed by Vincent Waller on January 23, 2019.[1]
